Velvet Blackthorn Chest
We were commissioned by our client to transform this intriguing arts & crafts chest, which has been in her family a long time so we were all excited to keep it alive, as soon as we saw the uniquely carved handles we couldn't wait to start!
The handles join the piece together, linking the two drawers beautifully. We all decided to use a House of Hackney re-design of one of our favourite William Morris prints, Blackthorn. We love the way the carvings in the handles mimic the tones and shapes in the fabric.
We painted the inside of the drawers with a vibrant red from Lick to contrast the dark tones of the exterior and also lined the bottom of the drawers with a soft durable fabric.
It's safe to say this piece is adored by all.
